This book (Practical Electron Microscopy and Database) is a reference for TEM and SEM students, operators, engineers, technicians, managers, and researchers.


Strukturbericht is a notation for crystal structures. The symbol is composed of a letter that characterizes and identifies the structure type and a number designating a specific type within a letter category. Table 2955 lists Strukturbericht notations. For instance, elements is symbolized to be A*, and AB type compound is symbolized B*, and AB2 type compound is C*, AmBn type is D*.
